Sunflower Journeys - Mined Lands

In this show, explore the history of the lead & zinc mines in SE Kansas along with their economic, health and environmental impacts on the region; then we meet New Yorkers Dina Kantor and Chaela Herridge-Meyer, who documented the decline and eventual demise of Treece, KS and Picher, Oklahoma, both former mining towns; then we head underground with Trevor Morris, a docent at the Kansas Salt Museum, who takes visitors on tours 650 feet below the prairie surface.
